Question

Hi I have a Nikon d5100 and backyard Nikon premium edition I can connect my camera and it shows up all good relevant camera settings showing no problem, when I try to capture I get a message saying that I require a dedicated serial cable to use in bulb or mirror lock session cancelled?

Help

Many thanks and stay safe.

Older models do not support controlling BULB exposures via the USB control cable. They need an additional cable just to control the shutter for long, BULB exposures. The D5100 is one of these cameras. This is not a limitation that the BYN developers can overcome since it is a caused by NIKON's SDK and camera capabilities.

The BYN Supported Cameras page here --> https://www.otelescope.com/byncameras.html/ has a link to a provider of this serial shutter control cable. The Shoestring Astronomy link is just before the large table of supported cameras.
